One of the most scenic national parks I have been to so far in India. Try the less explored jhilmil gate for more serene experience away from the chaos of tourists.

Rajaji National Park, Uttarakhand

The park nestled between the Shivalik ranges and the Indo-Gangetic plains. It includes Haridwar, Dehradun and Pauri Garhwal Districts. Due to dense forest, the environment forms a habitat for a number of animals.
We encountered with Elephant, Sambar Deer, Moniter Lizard, Spotted Deer and many more Birds....
Once visit place.

What a beautiful, hidden secret. The 42km jeep safari is a gorgeous drive whether you see tigers and leopards or you don't (we didn't). The landscape is beautiful, serene and a wonderful experience through sal and other forest types.

We took the safari through the Rajaji Retreat, their jeep was in good shape and clean too. Kundan-ji was our guide, he was very knowledgeable about the animals and birds- and we had a wonderful experience sighting families of elephants, cheetal, sambal, wild boars, peacocks, mongooses, langurs, birds including hornbills, bee eaters, kingfishers, drongos, stone chats, etc. We saw tracks of tigers, but not the tiger itself.

I would recommend renting binoculars, being patient, and enjoying all the flora, fauna, wildlife and serenity and not focus on only the tigers.

We visited on our way back from Rishikesh, and did the afternoon safari which runs for 2-3 hours, so do plan your time accordingly. Also, a very scenic drive.

Whilst visiting Rishikesh, I was so excited to be near a national park so booked a safari. Before booking, I contacted Rajaji National Park on WhatsApp to ask what safari (there are multiple) is best for seeing tigers and large animals along with other questions. I also looked everywhere on their official website to find out which time of day is best for safari to see big animals like elephants but found nothing. After no reply on WhatsApp from the park I decided to book a safari early morning just after sunrise as the general consensus from google said early morning is best.
I saw four peacocks, two deer and … rocks. The safari driver asked why I didn’t come at night/sunset because that’s when the elephants and leopards come out but I told him that sadly no one made me aware of this. Don’t get me wrong, the park is very nice but to charge 3000 a jeep for a short ride around just to see this is disappointing and scamming behaviour. Had Rajaji national park replied to my WhatsApp and/or provided accurate information on their website I could have attended the right safari at the right time but instead they allowed me to waste my money.

Whilst one always goes to the safari hoping to see tigers, elephants and such, I’ve rated our trip a 5 even though we didn’t see any but did see plenty of nilgais, spotted deer, sambars, wild boar, eagles, peacocks and got to really enjoy the untainted beauty of the safari landscape in the cold December winter. A must-do experience if you happen to be in Rishikesh or Haridwar, and best to go early in the morning, be there by 7am (of you can convince your teenage kids to wake up early), but truly worth it!

This is not like a normal National park like Corbett or Ranthambore. We took the Chilla Route and the drivers there don’t have any knowledge of wildlife. They only take you for a jungle “drive” and not a safari and charge 4.5k for that. Guides aren’t available. Any sighting or spotting will be possible only if you have a keen eye. The drivers just keep showing you deer and peacocks. Ours couldn’t even spot a langur. They can’t spot birds either. All the wildlife we saw was courtesy our own ability to spot them out. The driver would just “drive” and wasn’t even looking around.

Forest is beautiful. But if you intent to see wild animal, it will be a dis-appointment. You will be able to see only deer and monkeys. Cost for 4 person is Rs 4000/-. You will not get any receipt for the same, so you will not be able to know whether price charged is genuine or not. I visited on 22-05-2022.
